Roger, our feline "official greeter", welcomes you to Allpets at Pickerington.
Our purpose at Allpets is to provide your pets with the highest quality veterinary medical and surgery care so they can be a part of your family for many happy and healthy years. Our veterinarians, veterinary technicians, and receptionists actively pursue continuing education opportunities to enhance the quality of veterinary service offered at our Pickerington animal hospital. While the majority of our practice is focused on dogs and cats, we also provide veterinary care to birds, reptiles, rabbits, and other small pets.
In addition to our animal hospital, we offer two other important pet services. Our professional pet groomer makes any dog or cat look and feel fabulous after a day at our Pickerington "spa." Our immaculately clean boarding kennel provides comfortable lodging for all types of pets, complete with large outdoor play yards for dogs.
At Allpets, we value you and your pets and we appreciate the trust you place in us. We pride ourselves on our impeccable service, listening skills, knowledgable staff, and cleanliness. Our staff loves serving the pets of central Ohio, whether it is for veterinary care, pet grooming or boarding. Tours of Allpets are gladly provided upon request.
We have many new Moochie and Co. products now in stock for cats and dogs.
The football and OSU helmet treats are perfect for your next tail gate party! So stock up on toys and treats as the holidays are just around the corner.
As promised, Allpets donated $2500.00 in matching funds to the Friends of Violet Township Dog Park. Jan Anderson received the check from Dr.Jennifer Schoenfeld while the veterinary staff and dog park advocate Dan Pellitteri join the celebration. The park is scheduled to open spring of 2011.
Every November, Allpets offers free care to our local Pilot Dogs. These dogs are used to assist blind people from all over the U.S. The folks come to Columbus for extensive training with their new companions over the course of several weeks. Near the end of training, our veterinarians go to the Pilot Dogs location on West Town Street to work directly with the new owners. The dogs are examined, vaccinated and concerns are addressed. We also perform spaying and neutering for the younger seeing eye dog candidates. Jackie is featured above with Willow, and Megan is shown with Robbie.
Heartworm Disease Overview Canine heartworm disease is caused by the worm Dirofilaria immitis that lives in the blood vessels leading from the heart to the lungs. The presence of these worms causes strain to the heart and an intense reaction in the blood vessels. This parasite is transmitted by mosquitoes. For this reason, heartworm disease is more common in warm, humid areas of the world.
